Play warcraft 3 online with friends

play warcraft 3 online with friends
Warcraft 3 can be played online as if playing on a LAN without getting into battlenet.
Here is the procedure to play warcraft 3 online, without using battlenet.

(Note that this procedure is for warcraft: Frozen throne.It was not tested with warcraft alone, but it should work.)


1.Install Warcraft 3

2.Install Warcraft : Frozen Throne

3.If you do not have version 1.21, download version update patch from here
(version details can be found at the right bottom of game menu )

4.Download and install GG-Game client from here

5. Sign up at GG-Game by clicking here
Make sure that any firewall is disabled (or allow exceptions for client as well as game)

6. Start GG client and use the username/password you used to signup and login.

7.Click on "Settings" button on top right and select "War3 TFT" and enter the path of the warcraft frozen throne game executable and "OK" it.

8. Select War3 TFT on the "LAN Games" left pane and goto to your desired room (like yahoo chat room), you can play only with the people inside the room, so, if you plan to play with your friends, inform them to come to the room you wish to play (Double click a room to enter into it).

9. After entering a game, click on "Start Game" and if any message appears, press "OK"(sometimes).Your game will start.




10. In the game menu, goto "Local Area Network", create a game, and everyone in that chat room can join your game, or you can join in their game.

11. Enjoy the game !

    1. DOTAPOD is too laggy. Maybe it requires a very high speed connection. Something similar came up recently and its called "OnLive".

    1. I suppose that will work. But, only in GArena, you can find other people to play with. Of course, one can always opt to play in battle.net!

    1. No no. You misunderstood. GArena creates a virtual room similar to that of a Yahoo chatroom. Users within the chatroom can play the game as if they are on a LAN

  4. Xbox, the program changes warcraft to where the game thinks that the internet is the local area network. So you are playing still playing online just with a different method.

    1. Ensure that you have the latest patch for the warcraft game. You can use version switcher for that.

    1. No. GArena does not allow password protected game sessions. You can kick any player in-game whom you dont want to play with.
